As the holly jolly holidays have long past and we find ourselves in the middle of January, it’s natural to long for an escape from the dreary conditions winter brings—freezing temperatures, barren trees, and gloomy skies. While it may feel like March is a million months away, art is always a savior you can turn to for emotion refuge. In this case, you can spring forward with a cheerful collection of nature-inspired embroidery to melt away the winter blues.
The handcrafted rings of Secret Wood contain exquisite worlds that reveal themselves as you wear them. Produced using fresh wood, resin, and beeswax, the Canadian jeweler encapsulates miniature landscapes within the transparent material. These multifaceted settings highlight places that beg exploration, such as rocky lagoons, enchanted forests, and stunning waterfalls. The angular surfaces of the resin “stones” visually fractures these places, and it’s only after rotating the ring that you see the full scope of these fantastical lands.
Secret Wood makes every ring to order which ensures that no two rings are alike. Each wooden base differs in its patterning and coloring, and the elements inside of the resin will always have slight variations. Because of this meticulous attention to detail, it takes between four and five weeks to make a ring–but judging from the glowing testimonials, the wait seems worth it.
Secret Wood sells their rings through their online shop.
